About this Virtual Run: It’s time to be a Superhero again and join the race against child abuse. The Superhero 5k & 1 Mile Fun Run took place on February 3 in Florida, but you can still support the cause by participating virtually here at Virtual Strides. This virtual race is a family friendly event that benefits abused and neglected children. Dress as your favorite Superhero (optionally) and run or walk 1 mile, 5k, or take the 4.1 Mile Superhero Challenge and complete both distances whenever and wherever you want to earn this super 4″ medal!
About the Charity: Friends of Children supports children who have been removed from their parent’s home due to abuse, abandonment and neglect. As a non-profit 501(c)(3), Friends of Children funds clothing, beds, bikes, school supplies, luggage, holiday gifts, and other items not provided by government agencies. We can provide these children with some basic opportunities, such as summer camps, swimming lessons, and access to other normal childhood activities. We are there to fill in the gaps and provide needed items that the state of Florida has not offered. Our funding can recognize the need for urgency over bureaucratic process.
Virtual Strides Partner Event: This event is part of the Virtual Strides Partners Program. Friends of Children will receive 100% of the net proceeds from this event after Virtual Strides’ partner costs are deducted.
